After leaving the underworld we sailed for many days without sighting land, though suddenly we heard strange noises in the distance. I realised we were approaching the Sirens. Any man who heard the Sirens song would jump off the ship and be killed by the sirens. So I blocked every man's ears with wax and got them to tie me to the mast of the ship so I could listen to their song. The song made me want to jump into the sea to meet the Sirens but my men wouldn't untie me and soon we were too far away for me to hear.
